Garnier– New and Improved BB Cream

By Priya Kumar I'm obsessed with BB Creams.  Originating in Korea, the acronym stands for Beauty Balm. I have no idea how I ever wore foundation in the past. For those of you who have yet to try this remarkable new (ish) beauty product, it's just like foundation, but less cakey, less mattifying and offers a much more natural finish. It also includes UV protection all the while hydrating the skin-- great for the winter months! I had heard through the grape vine that the Garnier version was somewhat oily and not great for my oily/combination skin. Garnier listened to their customers and came out with a version of the product specifically for oily skin-- see: ME! Check out my pics below for the final result-- I love that it controls all shine without looking too dry-- like some foundations tend to.  This new and improved Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector for Oily/Combination Skin will be available in a drug store near you across Canada in January 2013. MRP $19.99 It is available in Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.  Here is some more info about the product: It includes Mineral Perlite, a volcanic rock extract known for its ultra-absorbing properties. It is able to retain put o 2.5x its weight in oil/water, 5x more absorbing then talc and is fast drying for an instant matte effect. I'm okay with that! It has earned its 5-in-1 label.
